Eight Juniors aged 12 to 18 years old from Ipswich Golf Club visited Ransomes Jacobsen early in April to practice and play a couple of rounds on the turf equipment manufacturer’s three-hole, par 9 golf course.
They were accompanied by Sheila Laws, chair of the Junior section, together with coach Kevin Lovelock and parents. Lottie Whyman, who plays off 17, equalled the course record of 8 and became the first female in the three years that the course has been open, to match the record.
Commenting at the end of the visit, Sheila Laws said, “We are indebted to Richard Comely and his team at Ransomes Jacobsen for accommodating us and we all had a very enjoyable time. The course may be just three holes, but it’s a great test of accurate golf and the Junior’s really took to it. The third green is almost an island and is a true test, whatever your age or ability, so Lottie’s achievement in equalling the course record was remarkable.”
